Facts about Ziggy

  • Breed: Cockatoo
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
Hi, my name is Ziggy and I am a Moluccan Cockatoo. My age and sex are uncertain, but the people at Beak n Wings think I am a male. I can't tell you too much about my early life, but I came to Beak n Wings in 2009. At some point in the past I was stressed and plucked my chest feathers. Even though my situation is no longer so stressful, my feathers haven't come back. I was adopted by a very nice man who loved me very much, but he developed a severe allergy to my feathers. We were both very sad that I had to leave. I am settling into my new foster home well. I am a friendly, social bird who needs to be around people. I prefer to step up onto an arm, rather than a hand, but I do step up. I also like to come down on the floor to come find you. I am looking for a loving home with someone who can handle a big bird. I eat pellets, fruit and veggies and nuts for treats. I will be ready for adoption again after 1/14/17. The adoption fee for Ziggy is $600.

Our Adoption Process...

Our rescued parrots live in foster homes, are treated like companions (pets) and rehabilitated if necessary, therefore we have no shelter building. All of our birds stay in our volunteers' homes as fosters. We have found that this provides them with the best environment for successful rehabilitation. Because our birds are in private homes, they are only able to receive visitors by appointment. This is set up after an application has been filled out and a home visit performed. Our adoption process does take some time, generally two weeks. Our priority is not to have a speedy process, but a careful one that ensures proper placement of our companion birds. Multiple changes can be difficult for the bird, and we wish to ensure their safety.
Beak n Wings is not a source to acquire free animals. The adoption fees we charge help us defray costs we incur when providing for the birds in our care. It costs a lot to feed each bird an appropriate diet, and provide appropriate cages, toys, and veterinary care. In fact, veterinary care is usually our largest expense. The exact fees depend on the species of bird and are listed with the birds description.
